From proprietress Odette Barrau-Badar, this vineyard, which is fabulously located just adjacent to Vieux Château Certan, Petrus and La Fleur Petrus, has produced a 2012 with a dark plum/purple color. There is often considerable Cabernet Franc in this blend, and I think that comes through in this wine with its notes of forest floor, earth and spice. It is fragrant, medium to full-bodied, rich and savory. This is another meaty, concentrated, very successful 2012 Pomerol It should drink well for 20 or more years.| eRobertParker.com.April, 2015

An attractive sample with lovely floral and berry character. Citrus acidity. Medium-to-full body. The wine builds on the palate with very polished tannins. Delicately fruity with pretty depth. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Tasted blind. Sweet and round with very flattering gentle ripe fruit character. This is Pomerol at its most flattering. Really rather gorgeous and a great shame to have to spit this out. Neat, dry finish. No exaggeration; everything in its right place. Rather discreet. Jan 2016, jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2020-2034

A good nose which shows breadth and dark fruit with a touch of minerality. Chewy and substantial on the palate, and quite complex. Good. FINE+RARE
